Bhadext Cona is the name of the female artist who is accusing the Rockstar of stealing her song.
According to Bhadext Cona, she did send the song titled “Bolga” to Kuami Eugene for a feature which he declined after describing the song as “Childish”.
A week later, The Rockstar came up with a song called “Bunker” which is the same as the song he said is Childish that’s the “Bolga” song.
“I don’t want to talk about the self-proclaimed Rockstar, Kuami Eugene because I am far better than him. If he can steal my song and remake it into s new song, then it shows you how superior and talented I am”.
As long as Kuami Eugene has stolen my song “Bolga” and remade it as “Bunker”, it proves that I am better than him. He is aware that he has stolen my song but I don’t want to talk much about it, she added.
According to Bhadext Cona, Ghanaians should watch out for her because she’s cooking something different and she needs maximum support from us to make her dreams come true as one of the hottest artists in Ghana and outside Ghana.
“I just feel like one day, I will win BET and Grammy awards for GHANA and myself so all I want is support and prayers for me to achieve this great ambition”, she added.
